GREAT Episode as always!
I don’t / didn’t watch any of the episodes / series you guys talked about today, but I still loved everything!
Anyways I have two questions-
1) Rae / Amire – What did you guys think of the Revenge season finale?
2) This is a stupid question but it’s been one on my mind for awhile- why do you think that tv networks hold out on releasing TV shows on DVD until RIGHT before they premiere? Do you think that REALLY helps promote the show? Or does it actually ‘hurt’ the series because people don’t have enough time to catch up before the new season starts? (The latest example for me was Pretty Little Liars, I watched season 1 on DVD and was ready for season 2 which came out the SAME DAY as the season 3 premiere giving me approximately 7-8 hours to finish a 25 episode season…needless to say I didn’t make it in time LOL) I know networks have put out DVD’s right after the season has completed in the past (best example 24, which ended one week and was on DVD the following) do you think more networks should release their dvd’s earlier or does the current format work?
Keep up the great work guys 🙂
